Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about cranes? We have answers.

Here is a list of the questions we get frequently asked, and don't be afraid to reach out!

What information do I need to start the process of renting a crane?

First, give us a call or fill out our contact form. A sales representative will call or meet you at the jobsite depending on the circumstances to discuss your needs. Each job is unique, so there is not a standard answer to this question. However, generally speaking you will need to provide details regarding the job layout, load dimensions, load weight, job site restrictions, and whether you are interested in a bare or operated rental. Based on this initial information, our sales representative will assist you in gathering any further information needed to make a recommendation on your crane needs.

 

What is the difference between a Bare Rental versus Operated and Maintained Rental?

Simply put, when you enter into a bare rental agreement, you are operating, insuring, inspecting, and maintaining equipment we own. Conversely, in an OM agreement, we provide the crane operator with the equipment and perform all required inspections, maintenance and repairs.

 

What do I need for a bare rental?

We will send our new customer welcome package to you, which includes the rental agreement, a credit application, and a summary of our insurance requirements. You will need to return the credit application, signed rental agreement, and compliant certificate of insurance before our equipment is delivered to the jobsite. Any of our staff in our contract, credit, and sales departments are available to answer any questions you have regarding this process.

 

Can you help me with any permits I need?

All State Crane and Rigging procures transportation permits to deliver/remove our equipment to and from the project site. You as the customer are responsible to procure all other permits (e.g. road closures, FAA permits, etc.) unless another entity on the jobsite has assumed this responsibility.

 

How do I know what kind of crane I need?

This is dictated solely by the lift details and parameters provided by you. Oftentimes we will request to do a site visit to assist in determining the correct piece of equipment for the situation. We will also provide you with a copy of the manufacturer’s load charts to assist in the decision.

 

How far in advance should I schedule my rental?

The more time we have to plan a job and our crane schedule the better it will be for our customers. Depending on the type of crane, we may need to obtain permits for delivery, schedule an erection crew to assemble the crane and, for certain cranes, reserve them in advance due to high utilization. Therefore, once you finalize your equipment needs for your project, we advise you to contact your sales representative as soon as possible. A crane is reserved for you as soon as you return a signed rental agreement. However, if you have a last-minute need, do not hesitate to contact us. We understand emergencies or unforeseen needs arise frequently, and you can be sure that we have the experience to get you the equipment needed on short notice if it is available in our fleet.
